BUSINESS PROBLEMS SOLVING
A PRACTICAL APPROACH
Problem solving is crucial on various organizational levels. In managing projects as well as in developing the strategy for the company.
We are basing our work on the theory of Professor Richard Rumelt, the strategic consultant to the Pentagon and Apple, and author of the “Good Strategy, Bad Strategy” bestseller. Our Strategic Business Problem Solving Model, which we use in our trainings for managers, was developed based on Rumelts work.
Benefits of the trainings:
- A problem solving methodology shared by the entire company.
- A shared language for when problems arise.
- A method based on team work, facilitating cooperation.
THE THINKING ON THE EDGE GAME
The „Thinking on the edge” game is a lab for strategic thinking with conditions of turbulence and constantly changing situation.
It requires wisdom and recognition of when to compete and when it makes more sense to build trust which leads to cooperation.
During deliberations participants make use of the strategic tools introduced in lectures.
Participants develop a strategy, which they test during following parts of the game.
The game is played on large touchscreens, tablets and projector, which allow participants to access statistics and data. These are the base for analyses, which enable to adapt strategies to constantly changing conditions.

Recently I had the pleasure of participating in Strategically Thinking Leader training, which simply blew my mind. Instead of a typical, boring lecture I took part in a tremendously interesting and engaging tournament. The game was very emotional for me and other participants and it set our minds on fire! (..) This workshop was extremely interesting. Never before have I took part in any training during which participants actually wanted it to last longer and looked forward to the next part or learning. This game was so involving that I was actually sad when it ended. (..)
